LOOK: Cleveland Indians have a little fun ahead of MLB Little League Classic in Williamsport

The Tribe will face the Los Angeles Angels Sunday night in the shadow of the Little League World Series.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Sunday's Indians game will have a bit of a different flavor to it, as the Tribe heads east to Williamsport, Pennsylvania, to face the Los Angeles Angels in the MLB Little League Classic.

The annual event takes place in the shadow of the Little League World Series, and gives young baseball players a chance to pal around with Major League stars. Naturally, the older guys relish the chance to have some fun, as it gives them a chance to embrace their inner kid one again.

The Indians arrived in grand style, taking in the Little League action before tonight's game on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball." Star third baseman José Ramírez led his teammates into the ballpark while behind the wheel of a special bullpen cart similar to the one seen in "Major League."

Some later made their way to the hill beyond the Little League complex, where young kids often slide down the grass on pieces of cardboard. With a twinkle in his eye, Cleveland president Chris Antonetti took a turn down the massive slide, as did slugger Franmil Reyes.

Others headed to the Wiffle Ball field, where pitcher (?) Myles Straw struck out Oscar Mercado looking on a controversial call by umpire José Ramírez.

Amid the festivities, the Indians and MLB Twitter accounts decided to go back into its archives, sharing photos of several current players in their Little League attire.

Once the game actually starts, the Tribe and Halos will look a little different than normal, as both teams will be donning special uniforms for the occasion.
